Let's Make It
1
Heat oven to 350°F.
2
Brown meat in large skillet on medium-high heat. Meanwhile, combine egg, ricotta, parsley, 1-1/4 cups mozzarella and 1/4 cup Parmesan.
3
Drain meat; return to skillet. Stir in pasta sauce. Add 1 cup water to empty sauce jar; cover with lid and shake well. Add to meat mixture; stir until blended.
4
Spread 1 cup meat sauce onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray; top with layers of 3 lasagna noodles, 1/3 of the ricotta mixture and 1 cup of the remaining meat sauce. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining noodles, meat sauce and cheeses. Cover with foil sprayed with cooking spray.
5
Bake 1 hour or until heated through, removing foil after 45 min. Let stand 15 min. before cutting to serve.
Kitchen Tips
Size Wise
Since this comfort-food classic serves 12, it's the perfect dish to serve at your next large gathering of family or friends.
Easy Cleanup
Spraying the foil with cooking spray before using to cover the lasagna helps prevent the foil from sticking to the melted cheese on top.
Note
The noodles will expand as the lasagna bakes to fill the baking dish.
Variation
Prepare using extra-lean ground beef, and substituting 2 egg whites for the whole egg.
Substitute
Substitute 2 cups frozen BOCA Ground Crumbles for the browned ground beef.
Substitute
Substitute 1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach for the browned ground beef. Thaw spinach; squeeze out excess liquid. Prepare recipe as directed, covering each ricotta layer with 1/3 of the spinach.
Note
Adding water to the sauce helps cook the traditional noodles during baking so you don't have to cook them beforehand. This saves you 15 to 20 minutes of prep time.
